The particles, constituents of all matter, are precious stones, jewels, vibratory pigments closely related to time and universe (1). Highlighted in the LHC ( Large Hadron Collider), these discoveries turn upside down our vision of the world and our origin, especially the space/time in which we live.

These gems of the universe are represented in cabinet of curiosity style, by sculptures realized in a dreamlike poetic manner with three dimensional printings, enhancing their non-persistence and accentuating their mysteries.

The current great discoveries in the world of matter carry with them big questions like information disappearing forever into black holes, as Hawking suggests (2), or more simply about the time consistency itself, which is our own, the one of our life.

Nature (3) is the expression of the most visible and observable time, one of the main valuable assets, the one that puts us in the persistence of our lives lost in technological narcosis. We must continually protect this nature, an integral part of our being, the natural time belongs to us, existing in each tiny part of the universe with us, or without us.

This timeline is represented through observation and digital scenes sets in videos, some filmed live within nature, where introspection helps to visualize, immersing in a universal breathing stream, blocking and stopping the artificial time of technology.

To search the right balance of these constituents: time, nature, and bring the technology to become tool of expression: this is what I invite you to discover in * Time and Particles *

" Being and time determine each other reciprocally, but in such a manner that neither can the former
- Being - be addressed as something temporal nor can the latter - time - be addressed as a being." (Martin Heidegger)


" A human being is part of a whole that we call" the Universe " ; it remains limited in space and time.
He experiences his being, his thoughts and feelings as separate from the rest - a kind of optical illusion of his consciousness. This illusion is for us a prison, restricting us to our personal desires and affection, reserved for our loved ones. Our task is to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion till embracing it all living beings and the whole of nature in its splendor ... "
(Albert Einstein)
